cabaret of curiosités 2019 > 25th February – 2nd March 2019

OUR COMMON FUTURE

This festival devoted to contemporary art gathers every year artists clustered around a topic mixing aesthetics and politics – tragedy, performance, storytelling, Aliens, the end of democracy, pooling talents, migrations…

Like a cabinet of curiosities, the festival shows every year a decided taste for variety, novelty and current events.

This year, we’re turning to the question of our future. We’re living a time called Anthropocene where man seems paradoxically to control everything while totally losing control. What world will we be leaving to our children ? Has man’s impact on his environment spiraled out of control ? What are the limits to growth ? Will tomorrow’s researchers discover more plastic than organic matter ? Last but no least : what can art do against destruction ?

Several points of view on the subject will be presented : mausoleums of sound and silence with Halory Goerger, self-made worlds by Louis Vanhaverbeke and Simon Thomas, Lisaboa Houbrechts’s situation room, Joël Maillards’ memoirs of the future and, for the first time in France, Iona Paun’s look on Romania…

We will focus on today’s global artistic creation, together with the Agence Nationale de la Recherche. Artists supported by the European Creative Hub’s Campus will as well be presented
